Most importantly, the bagels were great. True bagels -- boiled and all. I would return, but only on a slow day. We went the Sunday after a MSU game day and they were unprepared for the volume (although I would think this is standard on game weekends). They take your name on your order, not a number, and they call... More

The name is very deceiving for this great dining location. They do have great bagels but the dinner options are phenomenal. On selected nights, they have Italian night where they offer some of the best Italian food menu items you will find anywhere including thin crust stone fired pizzas. The atmosphere is very casual but comfortable. Outside seating is available... More

Best Gazpacho Soup in Starkville. Sit outside and bring you pup. They will even provide a dog bowl and water. Best Italian in Starkville on Italian night Wed-Fri. Bring your own wine. They provide the corkscrew and wine glasses. Fun evening with lots of locals dressed in everything from formats to shorts and tshirts.

Love this place! As a graduate student I like to come here in the mornings and work. This place has a very relaxed atmosphere. It's common for people to bring their dogs to the patio and just hang out. Their bagels are amazing and freshly made every day. My personal favorite is the sun-dried tomato but this is a hotly...

The food is consistently excellent; great bagels, sandwiches, soups, and salads. But, poor building design means can take a long time to place an order. Plus, the kitchen is small. Very popular, which often means you have a long wait to place your order and for the food to arrive. They really have trouble keeping coffee available and getting orders... More

Brought in 22 people to eat. They did a great job accommodating us all! More than a bagel shop they have a very diverse menu. I opted for my breakfast in a tortilla instead of a bagel. Eggs cheese and sausage and at an extra cost jalapeño green peppers and scallions. It was very good. Most of the girls stuck... More

Just across the street from The Lil Dooey and a stone's throw from campus, excellent coffee and a tasty selection of sweet baked treats complement a wide variety of fresh bagels and make City Bagel Cafe a preferred spot for hosting breakfast meetings. The main dining area is spacious with a vaulted ceiling, but the quieter outdoor courtyard is the... More

Great for breakfast, esp. if you like bagels. Nice for lunch, go for the quiche and soup special combo of the day. Weekend dinners feature pizzas and classic Italian trattoria fare. BYOb on wine, decent bottle beer selection. Under new management but they have maintained Joe and Mary's high standards.

This place is great. A little expensive to go every day but their bagels are fresh made everyday and very nice atmosphere.

This place is in my top 10 of best places I have ever eaten. Everything on the menu is amazing and the atmosphere is perfect for whatever occasion you have. There is seating outside in a quaint courtyard or open seating inside. It is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and the even serve dinner. I always get the roast beef... More
